3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light amber, fairly cloudy pour with a small head. Somewhat light aroma of grapefruit and herbal hops. Flavor is a nice balance resiny hops and sweet malt. Nice IPA, though pretty mild.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Holiday. Pours light amber with a big, fizzy white head that settles nicely with good retention, spider web lace. Smells light citrusy, earthy hoppy with a slight malt presence. Tastes very good, light hoppy, citrusy sweet with just slight bitterness. Some malt, grainy and cereal sweet. Medium body, good carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish-gold pour with a medium, off-white head. Evergreen hops, toffee, and rosemary on the nose. Citrusy hops predominate on the palate (which was a surprise after the piney aroma). Also pineapple. Nice IPA.

1.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tarry pine aroma. Unhazy lightly darker than pale yellow. No Head. Bitter soapy taste bud brunt . Eye pee aye. Terrible medication. Linger is easier said than done. Will not buy again. Too much for this lager lover.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
NTH TRIAL: Golden body with a thin white head; clean sweet smell with subtle bitter hop aromas; smooth mouthfeel and flavor with a touch of sweet malt followed by a great cleansing, floral, bitter finish. This beer isn’t the best IPA I’ve ever had by far, but it’s a damn good beer for a damn good price in a time when exploding hop costs have resulted in skyrocketing prices for some of its big brothers. This beer makes a great session brew and is one that I buy frequently.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle pours light orange with a thin white head. Lots of hoppiness in the aroma. Citrus and pine. Flavor is sweet and malty upfront with a nice hop bite in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2008 Yeah, another Jakebra crush. Sexy nose. The aroma is the best part of this beer. The nose totally led up to disappointment. Flavor is boring. Finish: maybe some dish soap. No idea why this is rated so high.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Capone’s. Pours dark straw with 1-finger clingy off-white head. Nose is deep piney hops, caramel malt, tangerine. Tastes crisp, smooth, and very resiny hoppy, with a solid malt bill that balances things out quite nicely. This one was very good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle, surprised alot by this one, its your traditional IPA color, but the taste is dynamic, very reminiscent of a 2hearted type taste, a tad more bitterness stays in the throat than with 2hearted but this stuff is pretty good IMO, must be pretty fresh. bottle conditioned also.
